Description

Taking a vacation to Savannah? Hit the ground running (or walking, in this case) by scheduling this all-inclusive tour with a born-and-raised Savannahian for the start of your visit! Cover a broad range of topics including historic homes, African American history, important women, the Civil War and the American Revolution. Join the group in the morning right after breakfast and you'll have all the basics covered before lunch!

The tour begins at 9:00am and departs from the NW corner of Telfair Square, across the street from the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences.  On this Tour you will learn about Mary Telfair, one of the most important people in Savannah's history. You will then learn a great deal about the city's antebellum African American history as you wind through Franklin Square and City Market.

Next, the tour heads up Bull Street and makes a stop at Wright Square Cafe and Chocolatier for the group to enjoy refreshments. On Sundays, the cafe of choice is Gallery Espresso at Chippewa Square. After the break, it's anybody's guess! The guide may take the group east to Abercorn Street or continue further south down Bull Street, depending on what guests have expressed a desire to see. No canned routine here! Your guide is responsive to your interests and no two tours are ever the same.

Your tour concludes around noon, so you have plenty of time left in the day to visit the myriad other attractions in Savannah or take it slow and head to lunch.
